Banana Toasted Coconut Chocolate Chunk Muffins


I have to say, one of my favorite parts about baking in using food to make people happy... while also getting me out of trouble when I screw up.  Think about- no one is ever mad at the girl who brought you cookies, or in this case, muffins.  These muffins are pretty universally loved, and are a foolproof way of saving your butt the next time you mess up.  

"I'm sorry my rent is late, here's some banana muffins!"

"I'm sorry I forgot your birthday mom, here's some banana muffins!"

"I'm sorry I hit your car, here's some banana muffins!"

Okay, maybe not the last one, but you get my point.  These muffins are amazing, and an all-around crowd pleaser. Super moist, not overly sweet, and completely customizable with add-ins.  I chose coconut, semi-sweet chocolate chunks, and walnuts (because frankly I was trying to clean out my baking pantry), but feel free to throw in your favorites!

So next time you've got some bananas that are past their prime, or need to get back on someone's good side, bake up some of these simple and delicious banana muffins!
